You wordlessly met up and gave them a mechanical advantage. Giving AA out as a head or not is not allowed, too.
Or first check if this happened.
Tomorrow I’ll go over this with a coffee.
I don’t see the point of him ahelping that he’s not going to metacom to give an advantage when I’ve proven they wordlessly met up, gave AA, then continued to work together.
Perma is excessive. You and your friend can come back if you keep your word and only use communications to teach.
From what I saw in the logs, you weren’t playing as CMO to lead the round, you were playing CMO because of the additional access it gave you.
You gave out AA for no reason, opened up Armory, generally made yourself a nuisance.
Giving your friend AA while meta-comming with them was icing on the cake.
As a heads up to anyone reading this, there’s nothing wrong with being meta-friends with someone, that is carrying a friendship between round. However, it cannot be exploitive in any way. If you wouldn’t do it for anyone else in the round, don’t do it for your meta-friend.
Especially don’t give them AA.
Im really sorry,our native language is not english so we dont want to speak in game that much.We wont do it again

Ban was reduced to a week. You should not give one another mechanical advantages in game via meta-communication, at all.
Don’t repeat this. You and your friend do not need to meet up. If they have a question, they can talk over voice for your help and you can respond.
Ban will be over by tomorrow. You’ve been warned enough about metacoms, you should be very aware of its limits, now.
